The Boy from Oz is a jukebox musical based on the life of singer/songwriter Peter Allen featuring songs written by him. Just like his actual life, the musical is composed of very happy moments along with very sad ones. This keeps the audience on the edge of their seats as they don’t know what to expect next. Chris Logan as Peter Allen and Michelle Lauto give a terrific performances. It’s especially fun watching Chris have costume changes on stage as he narrates the transition from scene to scene. There is a tongue-in-cheek joke about this that has everyone laughing. They save the best for last with a fantastic full cast dance number for I Go To Rio. Catch their final performances tonight and tomorrow.
Tickets are $40. Call (773) 327-5252 or visit www.stage773.com.
